Any feedback on these plants before i buy them online? nearly all tropica #1
First time co2 user and a new tank set up, any comments or feedback on my plant suggestions? is this too many for a 240 tank? how many should i buy of each? I do not have a great knowledge when it comes to plants so any advice would be very appreciated.


Delicate Ammannia
straight vallis
giant red totala
spadeleaf plant
mexican oakleaf
dwarf helzine
glossostigma
hygrophilla
grassplant
undukate crptocoryne
echinodorus redflame
tiger lotus

I will be usung fluval straum as the substrate mixed with ferts and co2. I would like that beautiful carpet effect as well.

I'm not very skilled with plants, and don't have sufficient knowledge of substrates or indeed any knowledge of CO2 systems as per your other questions, but hopefully someone will be along to help.

In the meantime, you might find these helpful as sources of advice http://www.scapeeasy.co.uk/ and https://www.ukaps.org/ , and potential layouts for your tank size including number of plants to have https://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/scape ... 0f6h3n0m71lr54ir2sjec6vf5 and https://tropica.com/en/inspiration/
